    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], one of the largest sellers of radio control cars, planes, helis, quads etc...

    I am a keen RC modeller with planes, helis and now a DJI Phantom 3, been using Hobby King for several months now mainly for their huge selection and low prices.

    Anyway they sold me a ready-to-fly RC plane which was faulty, the ESC (electronic speed controller) blew up mid air leading to a total loss of power (including servo control) and it came crashing down. Put in an RMA request and it was initially rejected, they told me I had modified the plane (WTF). Then after more back and forth they offered to send me a new ESC (worth $6) to put in my pile of smashed up airplane.

    So after all avenues failed I raised a PayPal dispute, and after much back and forth and evidence gathering PayPal rule in my favour but I have to send the entire plane to Hong Kong before my money will be refunded!!!!! it was shipped from their Dutch warehouse and for that I paid extra (I could have selected Hong Kong), so why are they insisting I send it to Hong Kong unless they just want to be nasty and make my life difficult??

    Anyway I look at the prices to send a 2kg 1 meter long box to HK and its 50 hardly worth doing when I only paid 80 for the plane, so I am pissed off as the cunts have gotten away with it

    I write to PayPal to ask them to close the case explaining that I'm not posting a box of smashed up plane to HK for 50. They immediately write back and tell me I am covered under their [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], so it won't cost me a penny.

    Ahahaha, I'm back in... take that Hobby King you robbing bastard cunts. never again.

    Thank you PayPal

    Glad to see paypal are improving some areas of their service, the buyer almost always wins as they don't want a chargeback but they will defecit your account if you use your card protection. They usually have a take it or leave it attitude.

    Thanks for the heads up GTi. I'm in a dispute with Focal price on a smartwatch, despite their no quibble guarantee. Next step will be to return a $30 watch using 20 postage :-*

    I thought Hobbyking were dispatching most of their goods from the UK these days. To be honest most of the stuff they sell "looks" the part but the only thing I would use them for now is cheap Lipos - that said I used to own an R/C company and I used to bulk buy lipos from a factory in HK for half what they sell them for and they performed much better.
